Cat Connor is the multi-published author of The Byte series (formerly) published by Rebel ePublishers, USA and now by 9mm press, NZ.
The Byte Series: Follows SSA Ellie Conway on her journey as a member of an elite FBI team that functions on dark humor, close relationships, and strong coffee.
Cat is 'writer in residence' at Writers Plot bookshop in Upper Hutt, she's also the co-director/co-founder of said bookshop which is a unique not-for-profit in Upper Hutt specializing in New Zealand indie authors and independent publishers. It's absolutely awesome but hell on the writing! :)

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in various places. I'm not entirely sure the places influenced my writing as much as the people in my life have. In fact, thinking about it (for the first time ever) it's people who have influenced my writing not places. The people I'm close to and have known forever, they have a definite influence on my writing.
When did you first start writing?
Those who have known me from school days would say I've always written. I didn't start writing seriously until I was in my thirties.
